Featured Artist - Yuki Fukunishi
This month's featured artist is Yuki Fukunishi @Penny3ee whose work stood out for its bold contrast and stark composition which work together make the viewer feel as if they are looking at a slice of something bigger. Like a vertical window peering into another world. She isn't afraid to shoot into the light or leave the subject just out of focus in a way that feels authentic and cohesive in a strangely reassuring way. We are proud to feature her work this month and share it with all of you.
3. Years Shooting
4. Years Shooting Film
5. Why Film?
It takes time to see the pictures. It makes me excited. Also when I take photos, the film camera makes me think a lot about the subject composition like the sunlight , clouds and shadows. It's fun to imagine the photos before receiving them.
6. Why Halfframe?
It is compact and easy to carry. Plus, I can take many shots so it's economical to use.
7. What's your favorite Halfframe camera? What are your favorite films with halfframe? What's your favorite combo?
I loved the Olympus Pen EE3 as soon as I saw it. My friend helped me to find one. I also like my Pen EE because my uncle gave it to me. I'm loyal to Kodak UltraMAX 400. The colors are wonderful. It's my favorite combo.
8. What are you trying to do or show with your halfframe work?
